From writing blogs to Australia's fastest growing wellness empire

Can you believe an entrepreneur is capable of building Australia's fastest growing wellness empire by starting with just writing blogs? That's exactly what Jessica Sepel has done over the past 8 years with JSHealth. From writing blogs and e-books to becoming a best-selling author, Jess was able to build her brand and community up to hundreds of thousands of followers all around a life-changing philosophy.

This philosophy is not just something she shares with her community, but has also helped her build up the JSHealth App and JSHealth Vitamins branches of the business which have since led to 21,540% growth, being awarded the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia's Rising Star award, AND debuting on the AFR Young Rich List in 2021!

What philosophy does she live, teach, and run her business by that's allowed her to create such incredible success? Listen to Jess sharing her knowledge with us on the newest ep of The Make It Happen Show today. Check it out.

Amazing guests, great insights into their journey and what has helped make their businesses successful. Great to hear how some of the guests have navigated challenge as well. Loads of good practice takeaways.

Perfect for the Monday commute


Great to listen to on the commute to work on Monday mornings. Great content, well delivered and plenty of insights from industry leaders in a variety of fields. Good to see the entourage getting out there with a podcast series

Top-shelf guests. Top-shelf conversations.


This is so awesome, so helpful, and so fresh. Right from the get-go, the team at The Entourage have brought out the big names in the Aussie entrepreneur and business space to have conversations that every business owner should listen to. I can't wait to see who they bring on next.

Amazing guests


Loved the episode with Tim Fung, Airtasker CEO! You guys are getting some awesome guests in! Thank you!

Entourage on point again!

Adz Rodger

Great content again from The Entourage! Particularly like the 1st episode and the points Tim Fung made about making sure you make time to map out the future and don't get stuck on day to day 'work', as well as the observation that you really need to be strategic about your people management and not just try to save money. Two awesome take homes I have already taken action on!

For entrepreneurs and non-trepeneurs alike


Well this was one of the best things I’ve heard in a while. I’m by no means the target demographic, having zero business or entrepreneurial experience at all. Luckily the advice given for business growth and success is remarkably applicable to personal growth and success. Loved the conversational style, by the end of the podcast I felt like I knew both Tims personally, which is a great mark of engagement. And I loved hearing about the humble beginnings of Airtasker from the founder himself. Give this a listen if you’re craving a bit of personal or professional inspiration.
